NFL Pro Bowl adds former Saint, former Tiger

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

LSU will have a strong representation at the 2016 NFL Pro Bowl at the end of January as Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry is the latest former Tiger to get a call to play in the game. The Saints do not currently have any players heading to Hawaii but former running back Chris Ivory found out Wednesday that he will be there as a replacement for the Bills' LeSean McCoy.

Landry replaces Steelers speedster Antonio Brown and will be in the company of other LSU players Odell Beckham, Jr., Andrew Whitworth, Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu and Trai Turner. Mathieu is injured and either Turner or Peterson will be preparing for the Super Bowl as their respective teams meet this Sunday in the NFC Championship Game.

Saints left tackle Terron Armstead was named an alternate despite dealing with his own knee injury, but has not been put in a position to make a decision about filling in yet.

The game is set for Sunday, January 31st at 6 PM Central.
